What is Web Hosting Reseller?

There are lots of ways of generating profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the shared hosting solutions offered by a specific web hosting provider. This offers immense opportunities for everybody who would like to make additional profit. There are different kinds of web hosting reseller solutions, depending on the reseller's level of participation and, of course, on the web hosting corporation that offers the hosting service. Before going into that, let us first discuss

What is a web hosting reseller service?

A web hosting reseller service is a kind of web hosting account, which permits the user to create various subaccounts that can be sold to different clients. This is chiefly accomplished by supplying the user with access to a master web hosting reseller account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts utilizing the server hard drive space provided by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given price. This is a lot like the shared hosting service and precisely like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller accounts share the very same server and do not get full root access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are usually not that costly. Still, they do prevent the resellers from promoting other types of web hosting services beside shared web hosting plans.

Various forms of web hosting reseller services

Aside from the aforementioned method of web hosting reseller plans, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. Still, they vary in terms of the levels of commitment and the budget amount that each one of them demands. As stated above, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't work out. This is why, bigger hosts like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of reselling hosting packages without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even deal with the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their program, the reseller registers free of cost and specifies his own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the user does not need to purchase the web hosting service in advance. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to deliver web hosting solutions like virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves advertising the service and providing support to the end customers and with hosting providers that do not request preliminary charges and tackle the billing and technical support provision, the only duty left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's web storefront. Another option will be to create separate user accounts on a VPS web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With most web hosting service providers, you may get those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared web hosting accounts and exert full control over both the users and the server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated web server, you may create various VPS server accounts and resell them to your clients. One dedicated web hosting server may accommodate 1000's of private virtual web server hosting accounts, depending on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to sell a more extensive assortment of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will offer you more opportunities when promoting your online storefront. Of course, utilizing a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than having a standard web hosting reseller user account. Therefore, this possibility should be contemplated only if the web hosting reseller has enough knowledge and practice necessary to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either register for a standard web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less participation from the reseller.
